20 Mar Light Regional Council – Kapunda Town Square South Australia
Regional smart city, Kapunda in South Australia has recently unveiled the amazing new town square project. Meet PAT is proud to have been part of this development with a new 1300mm The One drinking fountain with remote monitoring capabilities on the LoraWAN network.
“The town of Kapunda has lacked a central gathering location and this project has been on the cards for since the Light Regional Council first took plans to the community back in 2015. To get the project off the ground, the Council netted the State Government’s Places and People grant of $510,000. The Light Regional Council also accepted $159,244 under the federal government’s Smart Cities and Suburbs Program and co-contributed a further $185,119. This Smart Cities and Suburbs funding was used to further enhance the main street precinct with an expansion of public Wi-Fi network, waste bin level sensors and smart lighting proposed for site. Light Regional Council mayor Bill O’Brien said in 2017 the construction of a town hub was “vital” to a town like Kapunda.” Text sourced from Barossa Herald
